Tonight, Rose McGowan was scheduled to appear at the Tallgrass Film Festival for a screening of her directorial debut, Dawn, and be honored an Ad Astra Award. Talllgrass released a statement saying that due to "compounding factors" of the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment case, McGowan has cancelled her appearance.
“While we’re disappointed that Rose cannot be here with us in person, we understand that her well being is the priority. We support her and our thoughts are with her. We’ll seize this opportunity to amplify her message and celebrate all the women filmmakers with works here at the 15th annual festival,” said Tallgrass creative director Lela Meadow-Conner.
In place of McGowan's appearance, Tallgrass will host '#WokeWomen: A Candid Conversation with Tallgrass’ Female Filmmakers," which will take place prior to the 9:00 screening of Planet Terror, which stars the actress.
